Martin Luther King Jr.’s Thoughts on Justice They Inspire Our Firm Every Day!
As a civil rights activist, Martin Luther King Jr.’s No. 1 mission was to seek out injustice and right those wrongs. In many ways, this is exactly what a good lawyer does for their clients! They seek ways their client has been hurt or taken advantage of and hold the person who injured them accountable. Our team is nowhere near as impressive as Martin Luther King Jr., but we strive to follow in his footsteps every day. While he focused specifically on winning equality and human rights for Black and low-income people, we work on behalf of people who have been injured in car crashes, abused in nursing homes, or mistreated in day cares. Our goal is the same: Turn injustice into justice wherever we find it. King spoke beautifully on the topic of justice, and one of our favorite quotes is engraved on the South Wall of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C.
“We shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” Martin Luther King Jr. Day is coming up on Jan. 16, and we hope you remember these powerful words when it arrives. You may also consider visiting Atlanta’s Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park or The National Center for Civil and Human Rights to celebrate his work. In the meantime, here are a few other MLK Jr. quotes that inspire us! “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied
in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.”
“Yes, if you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice, say that I was a drum major for peace, I was a drum major for righteousness, and all the other shallow things will not matter.” “We are determined here in Montgomery to work and fight until justice runs ‘down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.’”
“True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.”
